The mail-order catalogs really are out of hand and here's a website that can help you save a few trees. Doing a bit for the environment in this case is free, other than logging on to Catalog Choice and entering the catalogs you want to not get. An example for me -- last year some friends gave me a Wine Country gift basket, and ever since Wine Country has been sending me these catalogs. No more. Since I've set up my account, I sit down once a week or so and enter the names of whatever catalogs I got that week that I don't want to see anymore.
Catalog Choice is a sponsored project of the Ecology Center. It is endorsed by the National Wildlife Federation and the Natural Resources Defense Council, and funded by the Overbrook Foundation, the Merck Family Fund, and the Kendeda Fund.
